Pimp my Ride
or maybe more like Mom my Ride ...and to think she only had three kids. Now, imagine six!
Isn't she a beauty!?! Is that really coming out of my mouth?! I think motherhood HAS changed me, because if you told me 11/12 years ago that when I was in my 30's, I would have six kids, live in the 'country' and drive a 15 passenger van I would have shot you a look like 'Are you freakin' crazy?!' LOL.
I cannot believe that I am so excited about this van. It is a 15 passenger, and we are moving forth with it, as long as the price is good. My friend (with the same family exactly) has one that she bought last week but hers seats 12, and I had MEGA van envy. So, we contacted the same dealership and we were contacted yesterday about this van.
Can you just see me now! I remember I never wanted to be a mini van mom, but I got used to it. Cliff and I (and our friends and family I am sure) have always joked about us having a school bus, but I think this is way more of a sweet ride. Sure, you can all laugh now, but hey when we want to go somewhere on the 'fun bus' I know you all will be phoning and asking us for a ride! You know you will!!
So, how can I pimp my ride? I am just thankful that it is not church van white. We made a special request for any colour except church van white. We didn't want to get mistaken for a youth group or something when the kids grow up a bit ;D
Anyways, it will mean freedom for the family, less fighting (I hope) and just a good drives with the kids. And, room for seven more ;D
The next 'lil purchase will be a car for Cliff, but the car has to be fun...with a sunroof, and preferably only 4 seats maximum. For those trips with only a couple of the kids...or maybe just for a fun date night out! So we can feel cool after driving in the big van LOL.
